The average height of American men is 5' 9", women: 5' 4''. I am 5' 8" and my wife is 5' 1". Perhaps that explains why over the last 35 years the only cars we have owned have been Honda's, Mazda's, Subaru's, and Hyundai's (!).
By the way, we had tried out both the base model and the touring model. And we chose the base model: it turned out that adjusting the seat from one of us to the other is faster in the base model than in the touring model. So, I don't think Honda has given up much by not providing power seats.
